Physics in Midterms



There actually is physics in midterms, and no, I don't mean just studying for the actual physics midterm. For example, when you are lifting and moving papers from one study location to another, you are doing work on that object. The farther you move the textbooks or study materials, or the more displacement that you move it, the more work you are doing on it. You can calculate the work you have done using W=fd. Another factor that goes into moving the books is the rate at which you do this, which is power. If you move them in a shorter amount of time, you are using more power. But, if you move the book very slowly, that is using less power. This can be explained from the formula, P=w/t. This is yet another example of how you can see physics everywhere.
